Present simple, present continuous and present perfect revision lesson
To provide clarification, review and practice of present simple, present continuous, and present perfect tenses in the context of TV habits.
To practice pronunciation: sentence stress correctly in questions and common pairs of words.
Procedure (39-57 minutes)
T asks the Ss to answer the questions in exercise 1(a) in pairs and elicit answers.
T draws Ss attention to the picture on P7 and introduces Paul and Rebecca and asks about their perceived preferences: e.g. Do they both like watching TV? What programs do you think they like watching? T asks Ss to look at the questions in ex. 1(b).
T asks Ss to listen to the recording and to answer the questions in ex. 1(b). Ss discuss their answers in pairs. T asks individuals to report back.
T asks Ss to work on questions in ex. 2 individually first and then check their answers in pairs. T asks all the pairs to check and discuss their answers by referring to Grammar reference section Meaning and Form on P134. T provides feedback on the board. T draws Ss.' attention to the Pronunciation section on P134. T models the pronunciation and repeats it with more examples. T asks Ss to show the main stress in the relevant sentences from the text, in pairs. T asks each pair to try saying them and listening to each other. T monitors Ss and helps them when necessary.
T asks Ss to complete ex. 3(a) individually and then check the answers in pairs. T checks tasks in open class feedback.
T asks students to write three more questions as explained in ex. 3(b). T monitors the Ss, notes down the problems, if there are any and discusses them.
T writes the sentences from ex. 4(a) on the whiteboard. T draws Ss.' attention to the highlighted words first. T models the sentences orally. T draws their attention to the dots showing the stressed syllables. T asks the Ss to read the sentences out loud. T claps hands to emphasise the stressed syllables, first of the common pairs of words and, then of the questions.
T divides the class into two groups: A and B. T invites each S from group A to ask a questions from group B Ss - the questions from ex. 3(a) as well as the ones they wrote; and vice versa (B ask questions from A).
